As promised, here is a recipe I prepared with the most delicious homemade marinated sun-dried tomatoes that I have ever tasted. I adapted it from a vinaigrette recipe that I found in Once Upon a Tart by Frank Mentesana and Jerome Audureau. If I ever get a chance to visit New York, I will for sure seek out their café. In the meantime, I can enjoy their informative and colorful book filled with lots of ideas for tarts, soups, sandwiches, salads, condiments, quick breads and cookies. So many helpful hints and amusing musings are included in this volume! Yet another treasured cookbook to add to the growing stack.
My version of their vinaigrette uses a lot more sun-dried tomatoes than the original recipe called for and actually resembled a sauce, rather than a vinaigrette, but turned out to be a wonderful accompaniment to a bean and vegetable salad that I will be sharing soon. My take on the recipe is that it would also make a delightful pasta sauce combined with some fresh herbs and nuts.
